Nice pic of the lobby, looks more open and bright and less clostrophibic as I thought, from that angle anyway. Although I'll save my final judgement until I'm in there.

The space between the core and the glass wall looked small, now after seeing a nearly finished picture of the lobby, it looks rather large.

those panels have been up there for two+ years. Good to see they're finally getting a washing.

Finalized schematics of Fulton and Vesey St. Just so you all know, the barriers, personnel booths and equipment houses (for personnel booths) are being designed by the same architects that design newsstands and bus shelters throughout the city. The whole point of the security plan is to make the campus safe while making the systems (personnel booths, bollards, barriers, etc) blend in with the surrounding streetscape. The security plan will in no way impact pedestrian foot traffic. All bollards are placed 4 feet apart from each other, allowing pedestrians to easily flow through the streets.




The personnel booths will look similar to this newsstand, expect 11 feet tall.
